Art Is Artist sonnet

Cover Image

Your personality and looks dictate
How closely I evaluate your art:
I probably won't even contemplate
Observing what you made if, in my heart
I think that you offended me some time
In days gone by, or if a friend of mine
Perceived you treated her like she was slime;
The you and the art that's you intertwine.
And even if I really love that thing
You shed your skin and made to show creation,
I can't get over what I think - I cling
To artist's form - not art's own revelation.
     Wherefor art thou, artist, where, for thine art,
     Thou art made aware yet not for my heart?
